  • Not Scoring 8 pin

    I have a machine that is not scoring the 8 pin during league. I put it on diagnostics the next day and it worked perfectly on the first cycle picking up all 10 pins and sweeping on 2nd ball . The 2nd cycle it gave me a 58 code so I left it on all 10 pins and put it on switch diagnostics and it saw all 10 pins. I put it back on diagnostics and it then gave me a 50,54,57,58 code. I have already changed out the 8 pin cup but still get the 50 codes. Could someone shed some light on this problem I have?

    I would start by checking your table for levelness and correct height while on the stroke limiter. You might also have a bad wire in the table wire harness.

      I am still having problems with the machine mis-scoring. I checked the table for levelness it is at 10 mm all round the table. The stroke limiter is ok too. I noticed that I get 50 codes only on first ball. I threw balls in the gutter for 4 frames and the first 3 frames it showed all 10 pins being left . On the 4th frame it gave me a 1 count with the 8 pin missing. It never mis-scores on the 2nd ball only the first ball.

        change / adjust your detector plate as you say you have changed the pin holder checked table level and checked the stroke limiter

          Possibly can be your Table Cable, I/O Board or CPU Board. I've had this issue many times and it ended up being one of those three parts. I'd start with your table cable first.

            I found out that the problem was the a-b angle was way out of adjustment. Thanks for your help.
